I'm finally making a little progress on my 278. I THINK I have the valve clocked right. But I can't find any good pic's of where the cleaner lever should be pointing. And is there an actual correct way the lighting window should point.

I did go ahead and by a NOS gen with lever off ebay. Kinda wished I wouldn't have now. But too late. I thought it would line up perfect with in the window. But it's a little tall. But would work I'm sure.

I don't plan on running a mica globe. Mine are trash. That being said if I run a Coleman globe and remove it for lighting I could just point the lever straight at the valve knob.

Or what do you guys think.

Here it is all loosely put together. Not 100% cleaned up either.

What's the name of the guy that makes mica globes. I searched for his site before and couldn't find anything. Anyone have a link.

Run it like you rented it!

That's a fine lookin' lantern.

the clocking looks right to me. Fred will make you a brass framed mica chimney-but with only two rivets, not 3 like AGM used.
The view you show looks very nice. They are beautiful lanterns.

Hey Dan. That's your frame, your valve, your collar, your mica. Hell. I think the only thing that is mine is the fount, vent, and burner tube,,,lol.

It's no where near done.

Anybody got thought on which way the cleaner lever should point.

Naw, that's not a trashed mica, it just has an auxiliary lighting door!

I wonder how hard it would be to simply replace that pane? I know folks here have done so, using mica from the EvilBay.

i think you want the tip cleaner lever pointing towards your valve wheel , basicly so it sits between your mantles not under em . i know agm had some tip cleaner generators but they also some similar to a Q99 with no lever at all . not sure what this originaly came with . but coleman generators use the same thread size .

I bought a NOS L109 gen. It's identical to the one that was on my lantern when I bought it with the exception the L109 has a hex gen nut and mine has a square nut.

The seller said that the agm gen should be hex nut not square. He said the square nut is not agm brand. Do you guys agree?

Here's what I bought.

i would NOT be surprised if this originaly had the L14 genny ......similarly coleman quick lites came with a Q99 genny but right at the end of quick lite production they came out with the R55 tip cleaning lever gennys , so when most folks needed a new genny they got the new IMPROVED style . if im restoring an old air o lantern or quick lite i go with a Q99 as that it what it used originaly ..... i dont know much about agm , just sharing info .

According to Terry's site this came with a straight gen. But would the L109 be a proper upgrade?

I just have it in my mind as a newbie and lighting some lanterns that require a little fineness to get going sometimes  (Kamplite) that the tip cleaner may come in handy,,,lol. Could be wrong.

you have quite a few AGM genny  options , just like coleman did . on a coleman you could use a Q99 Q77 or an R55 , all would fit n work . so it comes down to availability , price n personal preference .
